South Africa: Fears for jobs as Amplats eyes mine sales

Oh dear. 

The five-month wage strike led by the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu) is now coming home to roost.

Anglo American Platinum (Amplats) has announced plans to sell off its loss-making Union mine and Rustenburg operations as well as its Pandora joint venture. 

And there may be more sell-off's in the pipeline to come. 

The unions are outraged:
"The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) said it was seriously concerned and shocked at Amplats’s decision to sell its oldest South African platinum mines."
The move would leave 20 000 mineworkers jobless, Frans Baleni, the NUM’s general secretary, said.
Maybe Frans should have thought of that before he enforced wage-strikes for 5 months. Just a thought.

What did Frans and the other union geniuses think a company was going to do once the strike had resolved? Just pay unsustainable, exorbitant union-demanded wages, without there being any repercussions?

Now 20 000 miners will probably lose their jobs, and go from earning their bright, new, shiny post-strike salaries of over R12 000 per month to R0.....

And add another 20 000 unemployed in a country which has an official unemployment rate close to 30%.
Dick Forslund, an economist and researcher at the Alternative Information and Development Centre, which advised Amcu during the wage negotiations, said: “We say good riddance.
Yeah, Dick can say good riddance - he's still got a job. The union leaders still have theirs. But nearly 50% of the miners who they forced to strike and not receive any income for 5 months are now going to lose their jobs. Viva Unions!

But the idiot unions don't get it:
“.....The victims are going to be workers while the sellers will be richer and workers will be poorer and unemployed,” Baleni said.
While the sellers will be richer and workers will be poorer and unemployed?? These clowns seem to think people start companies not for profit, but just to employ people at salaries and benefits unions want for their paying members. 

Errr.... hate to break it to you, but miners want to MAKE money, not a loss. They're not in the philanthropic sector, to make wishes come true.

Hey unions! How about YOU buy the mines from Amplats and then you can keep the 50 000 workers employed, at salaries you demand for them! How's that for an idea? Why don't you show the evil White man and the world how you can have your cake and eat it too. 

Should be very entertaining.

But, the mining sector isn't the only sector to feel the might of the unions. No, 220 000 steel and engineering sector workers are now on strike, which is entering its forth week.

The National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa) were greatly encouraged to strike due to the 'success' of the mining strikes. They've promised their workers the same types of salaries if they continue striking.

If I were a Numsa union member, I'd start worrying about job security right about now.....
"As the strike by 220 000 workers in the steel and engineering sectors enters its fourth week, a prominent economist has warned that South Africa might be witnessing the start of a worker revolt against the capitalist structure of the economy."
Yeah, you dumb union communists, revolt against the capitalist structure of the once-thriving economy the White government handed over to your partner, the ANC back in 1994. It was doing just fine and was the biggest economy in Africa. Now these useless, clueless dolts want to "revolt" and bring in communism. Because that's worked out so well everywhere on the planet!

Listen to Mini-Idi Amin Juju Malema, who will ensure you'll have great-paying jobs forever, food on the table, grown for you by Blacks on the stolen farms, while you live in your stolen houses. And if you don't feel like working, then no worries - Juju will make sure you still get your generous government grants. 

The hospitals will be filled with highly educated doctors and nurses; the schools will have the best teachers; the supermarket shelves well stocked with cheap food; water and electricity will be free for all (apart from the remaining, surviving Whites).

Why, it'll be communist utopia! 

Back in the land of reality, THIS is what South African hospitals look like today, patients on the floor, filth all around - but it's going to get better under communism:

Johannesburg - Anglo American Platinum (Amplats) plans to dispose of its loss-making Union mine and Rustenburg operations as well as its Pandora joint venture, and will consider whether to disinvest from its Bokoni mine, leading to concerns among unions that 20 000 mineworkers will be left jobless.

The Amplats share price rose 4.69 percent on the JSE to close at R478.74 yesterday as investors were positive about the news that Amplats would disinvest in the assets through a sale or a public market exit, and analysts said the announcement was encouraging.

Amplats will now focus on delivering value from its Mogalakwena, Unki, Twickenham, Amandelbult and joint venture mines through a strategy that includes mechanisation. The joint ventures include Mototolo, Modikwa, Kroondal and Bafokeng Rasimone Platinum Mine.

The Rustenburg and Union mines contribute a quarter of Amplats’s production of 2 million ounces a year and are among the country’s oldest platinum operations.

The mines employ a total of about 50 000 miners and there may be just 30 000 jobs left when the dust settles.

Amplats plans to retain in its portfolio the smelting and refining operations at Rustenburg and Union.

BR Amplats 24

“The intention to exit Union mine and concentrators has already been announced, and it has now been concluded that Rustenburg and our Pandora joint venture asset will be better placed in the hands of new owners who would be able to provide the focus and capital for the operations to have a successful future,” Amplats chief executive Chris Griffith said.

The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) said it was seriously concerned and shocked at Amplats’s decision to sell its oldest South African platinum mines.

The move would leave 20 000 mineworkers jobless, Frans Baleni, the NUM’s general secretary, said.

“Any sale is going to result in job losses and this is punishment for poor workers.

“We continue to make that appeal for workers to reject divisions and stay united to defend jobs… The victims are going to be workers while the sellers will be richer and workers will be poorer and unemployed,” Baleni said.

The biggest platinum producer in the world was hit hard by the five-month wage strike led by the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu).

Griffith dismissed reports that the disinvestment was linked to the strike. He said it was a part of the “repositioning” of the company following the restructuring announced early last year.

Amplats would continue its growth plan for the rest of its local assets over the next 10 years. Between R70 billion and R100bn would be invested in South Africa, Griffith said.

The company preferred to sell the assets but would list them if a suitable buyer was not found, he said.

“We have engaged with the government and now we will talk to our employees.

“We are not shutting the mines down, but they will have different owners. There are a number of companies who want to get into the platinum industry,” Griffith said.

Kids today.....

This is going to be a major problem going forward.....

Anal Jihad approved for Al Qaeda fighters

Islam is a pretty fluid "religion", where the laws can be bent as seen fit.

For any 'clarification' of their laws, a cleric issues a fatwa permitting what their Koran doesn't.

For example - Not allowed to sleep with a woman who isn't their wife? No problem - just issue a fatwa where they can 'marry' the women just before they have sex, and then 'divorce' her immediately afterwards. Problem solved.

Not allowed to rape women? No probs - just issue a fatwa saying that raping Christian and other non-Muslim women is now acceptable - and just - and problem solved!

And the latest - Two men not allowed to engage in homosexual sex? No problem! Just issue an "anal fatwa", where two men in combat can agree to have sex with each other, yet still not violate Islam.

South Africa: Zuma sending special team to Israel

The South African International Relations Minister Maite (Meid) Nkoana-Mashabane said on Tuesday that President Zuma would be sending a special team to Israel and Palestine to go lecture Israel:
"In this respect, President Zuma will be dispatching a team, led by our former deputy minister Aziz Pahad, to Israel and Palestine to convey our growing concern with the escalation of violence there, including the endless wanton killing of Palestinian civilians and the destruction of homes in Gaza."
If I'm not mistaken, Pahad is a Muslim, so he is clearly the best person to be objective about the situation. 

I'm not sure that when the ANC uses phrases like "endless wanton killing of Palestinian civilians" and "destruction of homes in Gaza" - that the Israeli's will be welcoming this very 'special' team too enthusiastically.

It would be an understatement to note that diplomacy isn't exactly an ANC strength. 

But, that's not all. No - Zuma wants to invite Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to undertake a working visit to South Africa. 

No mention of when Israeli President Netanyahu will be invited. Must have been an oversight.....

And what exactly does Zuma mean by a "working" visit to South Africa? It's not as if Zuma knows how to work. No, all Zuma knows how to do well is to procreate, marry numerous women, steal, lie, agitate the masses of sheeple, torture, blow people up, murder and rape...... oh, wait, NOW I see! Abbas and Zuma could be twins.

Clever Zuma! He's obviously got some tips to give Abbas on how to get rid of the pesky Israeli's the ANC way. 

Think about it. You have Tutu calling Israel an Apartheid state, so it's only a hop, skip and jump until the entire world treats Israel as they did Apartheid South Africa. 

Now is clearly the time to teach Abbas how to read the ANC recipe for a flop-proof country take-over, and then go and bake:
Set Israel up as a pariah state internationally; agitate from outside the borders to put pressure on the government by getting the stupid liberals around the world to protest and hate Israel; begin a campaign of protests, strikes and deadly attacks on the people from within the country; stoke up the liberal Jewish and Arab university students to protest constantly from inside the country to convince the government they are hated; set up a few false-flag murders and blame the Israeli Jews, and viola! 
And then pretty soon an Israeli traitor politician within government will rise up, challenge for the leadership and demand the country be handed over to the Palestinians so there can be peace.

And then the true wiping out of Israeli's will begin - just like the low-level White genocide taking place in South Africa under the "democratic and peace-loving" ANC.

If Israel knows what's good for itself, it will fight for its survival - no matter the outside pressure. And any liberal politician, speaking out of both sides of his mouth about peace, needs to disappear. Quick fast.

Because, as we know with the South Africa experience, the moment the country was handed over to the bunch of "liberation" terrorists that the international cabal wanted the country to be handed over to, the cabal quickly forgot about the country and moved on to their next target. Which was Israel......

Next up - Russia.

So, you keep bombing your enemies and defending your people, Israel. 

And stand up for your country, unlike the South African traitor sell-out and joint Nobel Peace Prize winner - with a terrorist - F-wit de Klerk.

President Jacob Zuma is to send a special team to Israel and Palestine as fighting in the Gaza strip intensifies, International Relations Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane said on Tuesday. 

"The restoration of lasting peace in the Middle East is in our interest," Nkoana-Mashabane said while delivering her budget vote speech in Parliament.

"In this respect, President Zuma will be dispatching a team, led by our former deputy minister Aziz Pahad, to Israel and Palestine to convey our growing concern with the escalation of violence there, including the endless wanton killing of Palestinian civilians and the destruction of homes in Gaza."

Zuma would invite Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to undertake a working visit to South Africa.

Nkoana-Mashabane's comments come two days after Zuma called on both the Israeli defence force and Hamas militia to stop hostilities.

Zuma called on Israel to withdraw troops from the Gaza strip, while at the same time condemning Hamas's firing of rockets into Israel.

He called on the two sides to agree on a ceasefire and resume talks aimed at finding a permanent solution to their conflict.

Tuesday marked the 15th day of the deadliest violence in the enclave in five years.

News agency Agence France-Presse reported that close to 600 people had been killed so far. 


Flight MH-17

I listened to conservative radio talk-show host Michael Savage this morning - a couple of hours after the program was live in America - he had a investigative reporter on his show who has been following the MH-17 plane downing.

HERE is the link to the show - go to the 34 minute mark (or listen from around 6 minutes if you want to listen to the first hour of his show - which is always worth listening to). 

His guest - Paul Joseph Watson (of Infowars) - asked the following: Why won't the Ukraine government release the air-traffic control recordings, which will clarify why the plane was diverted over a war zone; and, why was the plane ordered to drop altitude?

Just releasing the tapes would answer a lot of the questions regarding what happened.  If they have nothing to hide and know it was the rebels, then SURELY releasing the tapes would be beneficial to their story and show the rebels were responsible?

And yet they refuse to do it.

As Watson was saying, every bit of 'evidence' released by the Ukraine and USA governments so far has been based on YouTube videos or recordings - no direct evidence - even though America had a satellite directly over the area when the plane went down.

Yesterday, Russia presented their evidence, and asked America to release theirs. Here's a summary:

In response, the best America could do was release this photo to show the missile trajectory:

Is that the best they can do? You'll note the map is dated 2010 (bottom left). You'd think the Americans would have more up to date maps of the region. 

And all this map proves is that someone knows how to work Microsoft Paint. 

How did the USA plot this 'missile' trajectory? Which satellite images did they use? Why did they take nearly a week to release what they should have had at hand?

Well, we'll never know, because it's a case of 'just trust us, we're the USA and we wouldn't lie':
"The officials also declined to provide more details on the satellites and other sophisticated sensors that enabled them to trace the path of the missile, citing concerns about compromising secret U.S. capabilities."
Riiiiiiiiight. How about just producing the actual photos or images then? 


Want to see how the media are complicit in hiding information? If you click on the Washington Post web article, the map has been cropped to remove the 2010:

I guess there's no need to add at this point that the Post are clapping seals of the Obama administration. Wouldn't want their sheeple readers to start questioning the validity or veracity of the tons of Russia-guilty "proof" they're releasing. 

The next media lap dog was the Associated Press, who reports the following:
Senior U.S. intelligence officials said Tuesday that Russia was responsible for "creating the conditions" that led to the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, but they offered no evidence of direct Russian government involvement. 
The intelligence officials were cautious in their assessment, noting that while the Russians have been arming separatists in eastern Ukraine, the U.S. had no direct evidence that the missile used to shoot down the passenger jet came from Russia.
So, no direct proof of Russian involvement, but Russia created the conditions, so is therefore responsible. So, Russia guilty - YAY!!!!

Okie-dokie. If you say so American "intelligence" officials. What a disgraceful joke you lot are.

But, their stupidity keeps going:
But the officials said they did not know who fired the missile or whether any Russian operatives were present at the missile launch. They were not certain that the missile crew was trained in Russia, although they described a stepped-up campaign in recent weeks by Russia to arm and train the rebels, which they say has continued even after the downing of the commercial jetliner.
The intelligence officials said the most likely explanation for the downing was that the rebels made a mistake. Separatists previously had shot down 12 Ukrainian military airplanes, the officials said.
Note - STILL no evidence that the rebels have done it. Lots of hints, lots of 'stepped-up campaigns' - no proof. No photos, images or intelligence to back up their stupid statements. 

And now they're saying the shooting was a "mistake"...... after pointing fingers and whipping up hatred for Russia/rebels since the downing.

Why are they back-peddling now??? What are they scared Russia knows? Or are they now happy at the level of anti-Russian sentiment around the world that they've achieved with their lies and it's time to consolidate their 'we need an investigation' position? 

And on and on it goes:
The plane was likely shot down by an SA-11 surface-to-air missile fired by Russian-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine, the intelligence officials said, citing intercepts, satellite photos and social media postings by separatists, some of which have been authenticated by U.S. experts.
Likely shot down by the rebels? America had a satellite DIRECTLY over the area - as per Russian intelligence, which they released yesterday - so why won't America just produce the images showing where the missile was fired from???

And the ultimate stupidity from the USA "intelligence" jerk-circle:
The officials made clear they were relying in part on social media postings and videos made public in recent days by the Ukrainian government, even though they have not been able to authenticate all of it.
HAHAHAHAHA - relying on social media postings and YouTube - by the UKRAINE government????? In the paragraph just above they say they have authenticated some of the social media, in the next paragraph they say they haven't. Which is it America??

Oh my hat. How frigging dumb can they be to admit this is their 'evidence'??????

It's since turned out that the YouTube videos have all been de-bunked, shown as propaganda and/or lies. The Facebook page they claim a rebel leader has and where he bragged about the plane downing has turned out to be a false Facebook page. The "conversations" they claim they have that it's a rebel leader admitting the attack proved to be from a different time period and for a military plane shot down the day before.

So, how's all the evidence-producing going America?? The longer they take to produce the satellite images - which they claim they have at hand - the longer the time they have to doctor them to suit the cover-up story they're feeding people.

However, some in the Ukraine government weren't so coy directly after the plane went down, with the Ukrainian Prosecutor-General Vitaly Yarema ADMITTING that the rebels didn't have any missile systems:
KIEV, July 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Militias in the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics do not have Ukrainian air defense missile systems Buk and S-300 at their disposal, Ukrainian Prosecutor-General Vitaly Yarema told Ukrainian Pravda newspaper on Friday.
“After the passenger airliner was downed, the military reported to the president that terrorists do not have our air defense missile systems Buk and S-300,” the general prosecutor said. “These weapons were not seized,” he added.
So, America doesn't have proof Russia shot the plane down, and Kiev admitted the rebels didn't have the missiles to do it.

Is it so hard to piece together who DIDN'T do it? No.

It's just very hard to admit who did do it. 

And aren't you glad that the downed planes' Black Boxes are to be analysed by Britain - whose Prime Minister, the pathetically, limp-wristed, metro-sexual, red-cheeked Just-Call-Me-Dave Cameron has already proclaimed Russia guilty - no proof required - and has said that Europe must impose tougher sanctions and NOT supply any military weapons to Russia - including France, who is building two amphibian military warships for Russia. 

Funny that, eh? Just as the USA wants - France to cancel the delivery. Now Obama's butt-buddy Cameron is out there calling for the orders to be cancelled...... must all just be coincidence.

So, a country whose PM has already found Russia guilty, is now going to anaylse the Black boxes????? Oh goody! NOT!!!

Why not Switzerland - which is neutral?

Here is the USA State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf admitting to the only genuine enquiring reporter - Matt Lee - that all she's got as "evidence", or that American intelligence can produce at this moment, is social media (most of which has since been debunked-LL): 

Ah, Marie - another Obama-worshipping feminazi, appointed from the loyal progressive ranks, who hasn't got two brain cells to rub together - with her black glasses to make her appear intelligent, and a quick sarcastic mouth to knock down any dissension from the 'press' corps.....

As Zero Hedge says:
So - to sum up - having told the world that they would release details surrounding intelligence about the MH17 disaster, US officials have pulled a "trust us" moment... blamed the "terrorists" and given themselves an out with Putin... all with absolutely no public proof whatsoever...

And all the clapping seals clap.

South Africa: KZN matric maths teachers fail test

Research was carried out on 253 teachers in KZN to see how well they did on a past matric (Year 12) maths paper.

Here are the results:

  • the average mark of the teachers was 57%
  • a quarter of them got below 39%
  • an average of 26% was achieved on level four questions (the most difficult)

Now we know why the kids leaving school in South Africa these days are dumber than a bag of hammers.
"The results of this study raise concerns about the teaching of maths by (Grade 10 to 12) teachers whose knowledge is so poor," the researchers were quoted as saying. 
Raises concerns? Poor knowledge??

It would be hysterically funny if it wasn't so sad. It's truly sad to see the state of South Africa under the ANC mamparas these days. 

Seems that the 'teachers' in South Africa nowadays get their qualification from a lucky-dip packet. Same place they get their drivers licenses.

But, let me guess. They're all unionised, with nice fat salaries, holidays galore and tenure for life. The untouchables. 

No wonder South Africa sits with an unofficial unemployment rate of 45% and one of the highest youth unemployment rates in the world if this is the quality of teacher.

I smell a revolution coming.

Johannesburg - Matric maths teachers in KwaZulu-Natal performed dismally when tested with a past matric maths paper, The Mercury reported on Monday.

Research was carried out with 253 teachers in the province to investigate their knowledge of the subject they are teaching.

Teachers got an average mark of 57%, and a quarter of them got below 39%.

The research was published in the "Perspectives in Education Journal" in March and authored by Thokozani Mkhwanazi and Sarah Bansilal from the University of KwaZulu-Natal, and Deonarain Brijlall from the Durban University of Technology.

The difficulty of questions in a maths exam is broken down into four levels, with level four being the most challenging.

The teachers who wrote the test managed an average of 26% on level four questions, which made researchers question how they could be teaching their pupils.

"The results of this study raise concerns about the teaching of maths by (Grade 10 to 12) teachers whose knowledge is so poor," the researchers were quoted as saying. 


USA: UW-Madison policy calls on professors to distribute grades based on race

For years we've had the liberals shoving down our throats that all races are equal, and that other races - mostly the Black race - haven't done as well in life because of White racism and White supremacy tendencies - and, because they've been held down and held back by the White man.

Cry me a river.

So, now their flawed ideology has come full-circle, with the University of Wisconsin-Madison issuing a policy mandating that professors have to adjust grades each student earns, so that academically weaker and "historically under-represented racial/ethnic students" receive the same grades as the academically stronger students. 

Grade re-distribution 101! You don't gotta learn to get rewarded, y'all!

But, but, all races are equal, so why do they keep going on about the ethnic students - after nearly 50-odd years of the civil rights movement in the USA? 

Could it be because, no matter how much money you throw at them, no matter how much you rig the system in their favour, no matter how much you become "inclusive" to appease them, no matter how much you pander to them, no matter how much you lower the standards for them, no matter how much affirmative action and quotas you impose on admissions in their favour - no matter what you do, the "ethnic" students remain ethnically stupid?

And that at the end of the day, they didn't need to attend university to learn the phrase: Do you want fries with that?

How does that saying go? Oh yes, you can't polish a turd into gold.

So, now that the liberals have tried EVERYTHING to bring everyone down to the level of stupid, and the stupid are still, err, stupid, their next grand idea is to MAKE everyone level by changing grades so that everyone gets the same - no matter how dumb you are. 

You know, because the ethnically challenged have been 'historically' disadvantaged.

How much longer you going to give them to become non-disadvantaged, liberals? How many more years - decades - centuries - before you FINALLY admit that no matter what you do to force everyone to be equal, they're just not going to be equal?

You need another 100 years? 200? 300? Forever??

When are you going to admit that some people were just meant to wash floors?

Capiche?? Simple enough for your tiny brains to understand?

You stupid dumb frigging nut-job liberal retards. You're a danger to humanity, society, and to the world. You need to be put on your own island, where you can worship Gaia, smoke your weed, sleep with anything and everything you want to, and sing Kumbaya with your ethnic brothers, sisters and fellow liberal wankers, while wearing your hemp-sack clothes and palm-leaf shoes, munching on grass and seeds, while sitting under your bird-murdering windmills.

Now that you've successfully dumbed-down America and made the children even more stupid than was ever possible, it's time for you to go - far, far away from humanity.

A new policy at the University of Wisconsin - Madison states that good grades should be distributed equally among students of different races.

The policy, named the “Framework for Diversity and Inclusive Excellence,” calls for “proportional participation of historically underrepresented racial-ethnic groups at all levels of an institution, including high status special programs, high-demand majors, and in the distribution of grades.”

UW - Madison professor W. Lee Hansen wrote about his concerns with the policy in a piece published Wednesday.
“Professors, instead of just awarding the grade that each student earns, would apparently have to adjust them so that academically weaker, ‘historically underrepresented racial/ethnic’ students perform at the same level and receive the same grades as academically stronger students,” he wrote.
Lee’s piece also points out that being concerned with how many students of each race select a particular major could keep students from picking the major they want.

“Suppose there were [sic] a surge of interest in a high demand field such as computer science,” he wrote. “Under the ‘equity’ policy, it seems that some of those who want to study this field would be told that they’ll have to choose another major because computer science already has “enough” students from their ‘difference’ group.”
